6/53 Leventhorpe Cottages
27th October 1976

Former stables to Leventhorpe Hall, now partitioned and altered as dwellings.
Dated 1856 on inner side of entrance arch. Magnesian limestone with
dressings of the same, slate roof. U-plan round a courtyard facing west with
a screen wall and entrance arch closing the 4th side, and a domestic wing
attached to the north-east corner. Single-storey, symmetrical; semicircular
entrance arch with impost bands, horse-mask keystone, and ornamental cresting
on the apex; pedimented gables to the wings, each with a round-headed window
breaking into the pediment and fielded panel flanking the window (left gable
rendered below the band, with an inserted window), and a 2-flue chimney on
the apex of the gable. Inside the courtyard the main range has a
segmental-headed wagon door on each side (that on the right altered as a
window), a round-headed blind window in the centre; and, rising above this, a
3-stage bell-tower with achievement of arms to the first stage, circular
clock-face to the second, and octagonal bellcote with cornice, donical roof
and ornamental weather-vane. The wings (and the domestic wing outside) have
impost bands to round-headed windows and doors. Low-pitched roofs, that to
the main range hipped, the others with stone coping to the gables.
